KEY MESSAGES

- Strong northwesterly winds will continue through late this afternoon before rapidly diminishing this evening. Patchy blowing dust will continue as well.

- Near critical to critical fire weather conditions will occur Wednesday afternoon in southwest portions of the area: Cheyenne County in Colorado, as well as Wallace and Greeley counties in northwest Kansas.

- Scattered light rain showers through the end of the week, but may mix with or change to snow showers by Friday night and Saturday with cooler temperatures. Some light accumulations possible, mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces.

SHORT TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/
Issued at 200 PM MDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Strong northwest winds continue across the area this afternoon on the backside of the deep cut off low lifting into Nebraska.
The winds will continue through this afternoon, as well as the patchy blowing dust, then rapidly diminish this evening as the boundary layer decouples and the upper low continues moving away. Tonight will see clear skies with lows ranging from the lower 30s in northeast Colorado to the lower 40s in north central Kansas.

On Wednesday will transition to a zonal flow aloft. A cold front will be approaching southwest Nebraska late in the afternoon.
Ahead of the front, temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s across the area. Southwesterly winds are forecast for the southwestern counties (south of Interstate 70 and west of Highway 25), which will result in afternoon relative humidity minimums of 15% or lower. HRRR probabilities are around 30-50% for wind gusts of 25 mph or greater in the same areas.
Considered a Fire Weather Watch for those areas but could not get a consensus with other offices, so will hold off for now.
Cold front will move through 00-06z for the entire area with winds shifting to the north and gusting 30-40 mph through the rest of the night. May see a few showers north of Interstate 70 behind the front with the upper wave, but looking at only a few hundredths of measurable precipitation. Can't completely rule out a change over to light snow showers in far northern Yuma County, Colorado, or southwest Nebraska, but not expecting any accumulation. Low temperatures will be in the 30s to around 40.

Thursday will start cool, cloudy and breezy with a few lingering morning showers, then some partial sun and dry conditions in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 50s. For Thursday night, will see another weak wave move out of Colorado in the zonal flow.
It will bring another chance for light rain and snow showers, mainly north of Interstate 70, but once again expecting only a few hundredths of measurable precipitation. Low temperatures will be in the 30s, with lower 30s in northeast Colorado where the light rain may mix with or change to snow, with no accumulation expected.

Friday will see the chance for light showers continue in areas north of Interstate 70 as the upper shortwave sharpens up and slowly moves through. It will be mostly cloudy and cool with highs in the 50s and east to southeast winds around 15 mph.
Precipitation chances increase through Friday night with a more substantial shortwave trough moving in from the northwest.
Temperatures will cool into the upper 20s to lower 30s allowing rain to change to or mix with snow. Some minor accumulations on grassy and elevated surfaces will be possible.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
Issued at 200 PM MDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Unsettled conditions continue on Saturday as the upper flow turns northwest as the shortwave trough digs into the central plains. Models suggesting a wet, slushy snow through the day on Saturday. However, with temperatures in the upper 40s for highs accumulations will likely be limited to grassy and elevated surfaces. Precipitation winds down fairly quickly Saturday evening with lows in the upper 20s.

On Sunday and Monday...northwest flow will be over central plains with a ridge slowly building from the west. Precipitation chances will be very limited, with only the ECMWF showing some spotty showers associated with embedded weak waves, while the GFS has more ridging and is dry. Temperatures will be warming back into the 70s both days with lows in the 30s and 40s.

AVIATION /18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z WEDNESDAY/
Issued at 1110 AM MDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Scattered rain showers and gust surface winds will continue to impact both KGLD and KMCK through the remainder of the afternoon. Some patchy blowing dust possible as well, but rain may have helped negate some of that potential, so will not mention in either TAF at this time. Winds will diminish and skies clear early this evening.
